Nara: Sushi
Open 11am-8:30pm. Closed Mondays.
Sun: Open Sundays

At Hiraso try kakinoha-zushi, sushi wrapped in a persimmon leaf, eaten whole. Takeout sushi is available from 10am-8:30pm. The rest stop behind the Nigatsu-do is a retreat for picnickers who wish to dine without antlered messengers.

A seasonal Nara delicacy is kakisuga, dried persimmon, dusted with kuzu (flour made from the east Asian kudzu vine) and cooked tempura style. Most of the set menus at Hiraso include cha-gayu. Hiraso has tables and chairs but the tatami alcoves are more intimate. Expect to pay between Y1000-3000 per person.
